MDT - automatic/forced re-imaging for integration center RRS feed

  • Question

  • Experts,

    Had a functionality question regarding MDT in an integration center.  I need to be able to lay down an image on any PC which PXE's into my WDS server.  The purpose of this is to lay down a specific image on a workstation which then be drop shipped to different offices...We're currently looking at Acronis, which has the option, but also a licensing cost.

    Is this functionality available w/ MDT & Custom Settings? Ideally I would have a technician plug in the workstation, PXE boot to WDS and walk away.

    Thanks in advance!!

  • Very doable with MDT. We don't change the boot order so you would have to select the device to boot from.

    Logs are very important. https://keithga.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/video-mdt-2013-log-files-basics-bdd-log-and-smsts-log/ Mention any customizations you have made.
